The Capricorns are pretty fun..... ummm, I just keep listening to their song, The New Sound from their myspace page.
Also, architecture in helsinki, that song with "5" in the title is catchy.

Viva voce are rather brilliant. And I have renewed my love for The Rapture.

wombat, I found Dirty Pretty Things are good when they come up on itunes shuffle, but the album as a whole gets old very quickly. Or maybe that's because my flatmate killed them dead by playing them continously.

I'm deeply immersed in Nine Inch Nails, and I have been ever since With Teeth came out (fan since 1994). Trent is an amazing musician and live performer.

PJ Harvey--she can do no wrong

Cat Power--saw her live a couple weeks ago and her voice was sugary goodness

The Birthday Massacre--I know they've been around for a few years but I just discovered this band a few months ago and I love them

well, that explains it.

I thought "Warsaw" was one of those honkin' dance singles they had in the 80s cause it said "Warsaw/Joy Division" on it.

I couldn't remember Ian Curtis' (singer for Joy Division, who became New Order when he hung himself)

I kept thinking: Ian McCullogh? No, that's Echo and the Bunnymen.
Ian McKellen? No, that's Gandalf.
Ian MacKaye? No, that's the hardcore guy.

Too many Ians with "k" sounds.

Maybe this belongs under "I was having a senior moment" in the Confessions thread.

i like a couple of clap your hands say yeah!'s songs, but in general i do not believe they deserved the hype at all. and they had to grow on me too--first listen i thought it was all crap. can't stand the effing postal service.

the garden state soundtrack's only saving grace is the paul simon song. i used to like zach braff but now i think he's stupid as fuck. i have NO desire to see the last kiss (though i will admit i did like garden state. i admit it. i liked it).

Oh, hey, if you want a smaller, newer band, check out Saintface, from New York. Great singer, danceable, very Roxy music like, and that's saying a lot.

They have a web site.

Peeve: I hate hate HATE stuff like "Clap Your Hands Say Yeah" Whiny, nasal, chirping vocals. Lyrics about nothing. Noodly melodies -- no rhythm.

Garden State Soundtrack = Satan, if Satan lived in the dentist's waiting room.

Oh, Simon! and Oh, Garfunkel! ye begat Elliot Smith. Ye live in Tapas bars with darling young things taking pictures of each others "kicks" while attempting to find affluent mates to produce proper offspring with for all eternity, alas!

I'm obsessed with Cake Bake Betty. I stumbled on their myspace page about a month ago and immediately bought their cd on iTunes. They're great.

I've also been in a Wolf Parade, Tapes 'n' Tapes, and New Pornographers mood as of late. They've come back into heavy rotation.

Got the Kasabian and Dirty Pretty Things.

Not sure what I think of them as yet. They were compared to mid-90s bands like the Stone Roses but Im not feeling it as of yet.

A record store nearby is going out of business, so my guy bought a New Order collected box set -- pretty awesome.

I bought another copy of Iggy Pop's The Idiot. A masterpiece. I'm looking forward to listening to it in my heavy stone, high ceilinged, leaded glass, good stereo apartment. To me it speaks of winter nights. The way he wrote it in Berlin in the 70s.

I once lived in an apartment where there were french doors to a balcolny -- the old kind, with many small panes, and there was snow falling and I lay in the dark listening to the very quiet and sweeping and scanning build up to Mass Production. It was as if I were living in a black and white world.

eta: coincidence: Joy Division singer hung himself, leaving The Idiot playing.

it is it is! i bought it stateside! it's SO GOOD. some of the songs he re-released as the french, but most of them i've never heard, and i'm possibly the world's number two hefner fan (my bff being number 1).

I've been raiding myspace for free downloads in the last days or so, and I've found so much brilliant stuff!

I'm so infatuated with the Danielson Famile, I'm very close to crying, their music so beautiful...
I also love:
Daniel Johnston
the Saints
the Thermals
the Bromheads Jacket
the Greenhornes

some freaky 60's bands:
the Peanut Butter Conspiracy
the Carrie Nations

and my favourite unsigned band:
the Charlie Parkers


and to ruin my cool, I have to admit, that the Sugababes version of I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor is probably my favourite coverversion of all time...

aimee mann
the mamas and the papas
the doors
the ronettes

i'm having trouble getting into the newer, trendy bands...everything sounds the same...maybe it's the overly complicated hair-dos...i have this theory that the more complicated the hair dos....the more the music sucks...
